5/13/18 UPDATE!!! JUST TO LET YOU KNOW that the Hale Kai Nalu is in Hwn Paradise Park a SAFE AREA, NO VOLCANIC CONCERNS HERE... It is beautiful, we are open and there is still plenty to do here on the east side. My 45 years as a resident and 41 years as a Realtor here will insure you know where to go and what to do to make it the perfect stay. PLEASE come to the Big Island and our fantastic rental.

Welcome to Hale Kai Nalu (“home of the ocean wave”) - a perfect place to call home while you enjoy all that the magic that the Big Island has to offer. Here, everyday stresses will melt away and our Aloha-pace of life will become yours. Make our cozy and private oceanfront home yours while you vacation.


Hale Kai Nalu is a newer 3-bedroom, 2-bath home with spectacular views of the ocean. The master suite is located away from the other bedrooms and includes a walk-in shower, his and hers vanities, and a soaking tub. The 2 guest bedrooms and the guest bathroom are on the opposite end of the home. One of the guest bedrooms offers a wonderful view of the ocean as well while the other offers a garden view.

The home is tastefully furnished and has just about everything you need to make your trip memorable. We provide all linens and towels, complimentary bottled water, and wireless high-speed internet access (bring your laptop). A gas grill and the fully equipped kitchen will provide you with all you need to create gourmet meals.

Lounge in the spacious custom in-ground pool overlooking the vast Pacific or simply enjoy a novel while relaxing on the deck. Soak in the hot tub with the stars above, the sounds of the ocean everywhere, and a nice cool glass of your favorite drink, after a long day of tropical adventure.


The view from the property is very special – you’ll be treated to the drama of the waves, white fluffy clouds, beautiful sunrises, passing cruise ships in the distance, and our version of backyard wildlife. Sea turtles, dolphins, whales (Nov-May), and even the occasional manta ray can be spotted from the oceanfront. Mynas, doves, cardinals, geese, great frigatebird, and other birds occasionally drop in for a visit and provide a source of entertainment.


At Hale Kai Nalu, we strive to be friendly to the environment. We have solar water heating, fluorescent lighting, and energy-efficient fixtures. Ceiling fans throughout the home and screened windows allow us to take advantage of the wonderful breezes to cool the home. We partner with a eco-friendly house keeping service to minimize the use of harsh chemicals. Finally, we recycle and make it easy for our guests to participate with conveniently placed bins.


The entire property is fenced for additional privacy and peace of mind. There is a front entry gate with an automatic opener (a portable remote control is available to allow convenient access from your vehicle). The oceanfront area is accessed through a pedestrian gate that is lockable. Access into the home is easy - there are no stairs and access through the front door is through a slight transition.


The home is located in Hawaiian Paradise Park, about 18 miles from the historic town of Hilo (main town of the Big Island) and 10 miles from Pahoa – you’ll have easy access to various shops and services. It is an ideal location to launch all of your east Hawaii adventures.

Why The Owner chose Keaau

We chose this location mainly for the peaceful, oceanfront location and its proximity to many of East Hawaii's sights. The half-acre lot provides privacy and the opportunity to create a lush tropical landscape. We're constantly experimenting with plants that thrive in the oceanfront environment so our landscape is wonderfully evolving.

What makes this house unique

Relaxing in the pool and hot tub are our favorite activities when we visit the property. Especially enjoyable is hanging out in the hot tub in the evening while looking out at the stars and moon, smelling the ocean mist, and listening to the surf.

Having the full kitchen and grill provides us with the ability to create home-cooked meals while visiting.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The view is awesome! We saw a whale! The pool is fun! The home is very beautiful and comfortable for a family. We came to visit our son and his family & all 6 of us had a great time! We are sorry to leave, especially since we are going home to a foot of snow.

Also nice to have pool toys and beach supplies.

Everything about this place is great

  • 5 of 5

We Visited during the eruption, Our original plans were to stay in Kapoho, but things changed when lava started flowing. This house is well out of harm's way but we could still enjoy the glowing sky from the eruption. While most of the island had hazy nasty air quality this house is located perfectly and the trade winds gave us crystal clear views and air quality.

The house itself was very comfortable, we spent a lot of time lounging around the pool and walking up-and-down the coastline out front.

Excellent place, couldn't be happier

Beautiful Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

This house is just about perfect. The view is amazing. We had so much fun in the pool. Terry is so easy to work with. The house is beautiful and well stocked.

A couple things to be aware of. The ocean view means a decent drive in and out of the subdivision. Also, A/C is not common. The house gets a great breeze, but you have to sleep with the windows open. The frogs are beautiful but loud. You may need earplugs.

I really enjoyed waking to the sound of the waves crashing on the cliffs. I would then open my eyes to see the sun rising over the ocean.

My whole family if five loved the house. It was the perfect house for us.

Great Place to Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was a great place to stay for our short trip to Hawaii! It is accessible to Hilo where you can shop and eat but serene enough to feel like your own little oasis. The home is much bigger than I anticipated; more than enough room for 4 adults and it was incredibly clean (I am a clean freak)! The pool was absolutely amazing and a great place to relax during the day. We ended up staying in just to enjoy the house rather than going out to adventure a few times because we enjoyed it so much.

We visited from July 19 - 24, 2018 so yes Pele was active; you can admire her beauty from a safe distance by seeing the glow in the sky at night - which is a huge plus! The air quality was fresh with a lovely ocean breeze, so not much of a concern there. This home is completely safe and far from the actual eruptions.

I highly recommend this rental for groups/families.

More Exciting Than Originally Planned

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 5/2 - 5/5. The house/grounds/pool are fantastic and are just as pictured. Neighborhood is quiet and relaxing, but within a short driving distance of lots of sights, restaurants, etc. We actually changed some of our planned activities in order to spend more time at the house. During our stay, we experienced more excitement than we were planning on....we were there during the 2 earthquakes and subsequent volcanic eruptions. Being from the east coast, we were freaking out. Terry called to check on us and helped to alleviate any immediate fears we had. I would definitely stay there again, and would have no problem recommending the house to my family/friends.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind words. YES THE HOME is in a completely SAFE area from the eruption and there have been NO other significant earthquakes since you were here. There are numerous ones in Volcano Park, 35 miles away, but you will NOT feel them at all at the home. COME TO THE BIG ISLAND, there is still so much to do and enjoy and my 42 years as a Realtor and 45 years as a resident will insure you know where to go and what to do to make it the perfect stay.

Puna Teasure - perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Hale Kai Nalu offers a comfortable and convenient home base to enjoy the beauty and adventure of the Big Island. Well maintained property, unparalleled ocean views, comfortable sleeping and lounging and fantastic pool. Plenty of access to morning and afternoon sun which keeps pool temp just right during a day of sunshine. Highly recommended: the farmers market on Sunday just a few miles up Pahoa Road. Hilo town is just 20 minutes away.

This is a shaded area with a good alternative view of the dramatic coastline. *** Kapoho ponds (about 15 miles from front door) – one of the best snorkeling spots in Hawaii. *** Onomea Botanical Gardens – A “must” for the plant lover. Located a few miles north of Hilo. *** Liliuokalani Park – A beautiful Japanese garden in Hilo. *** The Hilo Farmer’s Market – Each Wednesday and Saturday, this market bursts into a dizzying array of color, wares, fruits, and produce. *** Directions to these and many other East Hawaii sites are described in our guest binder.
